Since its birth, rock music has been seen as a revolutionary force and an agent of social change. But Pink Floyd’s show in Venice on July 15th, 1989, unintentionally resulted in the mayor and the entire city council resigning in the aftermath of their performance.⁣ ⁣ Even before a note was played, residents were up in arms, saying that the vibrations caused by the music had the potential to cause harm to the ancient monuments. So the band, sympathetic to the city, agreed to reduce the volume of its performance from 100 decibels to 60, and performed from a floating barge in a lagoon 200 yards from the square.⁣ ⁣ It was the audience, which numbered 200,000, that did the most damage. Officials said that they left behind 300 tons of garbage, and because the city didn’t provide portable bathrooms, concertgoers relieved themselves on the monuments and walls.⁣ ⁣ The public outrage was immediate. At a public meeting two days later, Mayor Antonio Casellati took defense saying that there was “unusual pressure” from “RAI”, the state-run television network that profited from the concert. But his attempts at spin were shouted down with "Resign, resign, you've turned Venice into a toilet." The Venetians got their wish.

congenitaldisease: Letchworth Village was a psychiatric hospital located in Rockland County, New York. It housed patients ranging from newborn to elderly. It opened in 1911 and was rife with reports of unfair treatment of the patients ranging from patients being unclothed and neglected to reports of rape. In 1996, the psychiatric hospital was closed down and has since fallen to disrepair. To add insult to injury, there are a number of numbered gravestones hidden among the woodland. These unnamed gravestones belong to those who never made it out of Letchworth. After a number of years, a bronze monument was erected at the entrance of the cemetery which lists around 900 names. However, these names are not linked to the plots in which patients were buried but they are believed to be buried in the cemetery somewhere.

Some people threw white paint on it a few years back. They want to be a victim so bad. Fun Fact: That’s a statue of the fist which Joe Louis used to knock out Max Schmeling, Hitler’s favored heavyweight boxer in 1938. Schmeling won the 1st bout by knockout in round twelve, but Joe Louis came back in the follow-up match and laid him the fuck out in the 1st round. Fun Fact: Schmeling was hated by the Nazis for losing to a black man and for having a Jewish manager, and he hated them right back, stating in 1975 that he was glad he’d lost the fight because the thought of  the Nazis using him for propaganda purposes sickened him. He also personally saved the lives of two Jewish children and later became lifelong friends with Joe Louis. So maybe don’t refer to him as “Hitler’s favored heavyweight boxer”…

the-anarcho-raver: kropotkindersurprise: sarcasticlevellouise: kropotkindersurprise: August 14 2017 - Protesters in Durham, North Carolina decide to take matters into their own hands and take down a confederate statue.  The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read “The Confederate States of America.”  One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. this weekend.“It needs to be removed,” organizer Loan Tran told the news station. “These Confederate statues in Durham, in North Carolina, all across the country.” [video] By taking these down, you’re erasing history. Germany left Holocaust camps standing, so we can learn from our mistakes. No wonder America is regressing. Germany specifically destroyed the Nazi monuments you fucking dumbass, and they made new monuments to remember the people oppressed and murdered by the Nazis. I wanna see a new popular meme of the statue with its legs bent in. 😂😂: the-anarcho-raver: kropotkindersurprise: sarcasticlevellouise: kropotkindersurprise: August 14 2017 - Protesters in Durham, North Carolina decide to take matters into their own hands and take down a confederate statue.  The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read “The Confederate States of America.”  One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. this weekend.“It needs to be removed,” organizer Loan Tran told the news station. “These Confederate statues in Durham, in North Carolina, all across the country.” [video] By taking these down, you’re erasing history.
